Diego's 1st Holy Communion

Another tearjerker for me.

Diego's 1st Holy Communion was held at the St. Therese of the Child Jesus Church along Marcos Highway, directly across SM Masinag.  We were ushered to our seats at the back of the Church while we waited for the processional to start.

Here we go again.
At one time during mass, I think it was before or after Offertory, all participants stood up and started to make take a beeline to where the parents are seated. I felt heavy in my chest when I saw Diego coming over and gave me a rose and a letter. Iyakin talaga ako.

After the ceremony, we took photos of Diego at the altar for posterity, and headed home to fetch Andee for lunch.

We had lunch at Barrio Fiesta SM Megamall, courtesy of a voucher we got from Metrodeal.

It was for lunch good for 4, consisting of Seafood Paella Rice, Fried Chicken and soda.  It was Andee and Diego's first time to taste paella and they loved it.

Diego's 9th Birthday. Transformers 3D at Resorts World

It's a double date!

Thanks to Ingrid and Nelson, with their invitation and tickets to watch Transformers 3D at the Resorts World, I went home after my shift to fetch Diego at home for a post birthday treat. It was our first time at Resort World, and WOW. Met up with Ingrid and Nelson and had a quick lunch before the screening.

There are just a few shops here, or maybe because we didn't really get the chance to explore.  (Would like to take a peek at the casino though..).

Graduation celebration at the Old Spaghetti House, Antipolo.

Congratulations, baby!

Andee graduated from the 6th grade at St. Scholastica's Academy.  Ganon talaga pala ang feeling.   You get teary-eyed all over again.  We had an early lunch before I brought her over to my favorite hairdresser, Dante, at Alter Image for her hair.  I just had to make sure that she feels special today.

At the ceremony, I called up the Old Spaghetti House (TOSH) along Sumulong Highway in Antipolo to confirm our appointment, and advise them that we'll be running a little late.  Good enough, when we arrived, we were escorted to their original restaurant just below Grilla, and we had the place all to ourselves.

We took advantage of ordering both from the menus of TOSH and Grilla. Andee and Diego opted for pasta (as usual).

Okay.. I forgot what this is now...

We also ordered Grilla's Family Barbeque Feast platter

And lastly for dessert, Grilla Smores.  A hit with the kids!

Pan de Amerikano merienda

Enrollment nanaman!

We started our day early.  Andee and Diego tagged along.  Was at St. Scho before 9am and finished fast.  We took a detour to Pan de Amerikano for a quick merienda before heading over to San Benildo for Diego's enrollment.

This has always been a favorite breakfast/ merienda hang-out whenever we had to go to Marikina Heights, or sometimes after shift for an early morning breakfast.  The kids love pasta and as expected, this is what they ordered.  I indulge in my favorite cornbeef pandesal with coffee.

While Andee and Diego were having a quick game of chess while waiting for our food, I can't help but admire the way this place looks.  Though I've been here a dozen times, it doesn't fail to leave me just sitting here and silently wishing I had a place like this.  Oh well.  Taya muna ako sa Lotto.
